  1. Hi @Kvass, I'll have to look into this some more. I have a vague recollection about there being something weird about FMC JTAG connectivity, but I don't recall the details well enough at the moment to provide any useful detail. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hi @CuriousRF, Welcome to the Forums! If you haven't seen them already, these two threads might be of interest to you: Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi @npscx, This thread should address all of your questions: Thanks, JColvin
  4. Hi @ivansavy, Normally when I encounter the Executables selected for download error don't exist, I normally have to rebuild the project (CTRL+B). I don't believe there are any differences between the Rev B and Rev E of the Arty S7, so you shouldn't need to change board files (there isn't a Rev E board file for the Arty S7 50 anyways. I know some recent changes were made to the Getting Started with the Vivado IP Integrator Guide and it looks like the steps are a bit out of order so I'll go through the tutorial as written (rather than by memory) and see if I can readily replicate the s
  5. Hi @Claford V Lawrence, I'm a bit confused about the described behavior. What do you mean it only succeeds a fraction of the time? As in the serial UART doesn't communicate with your host computer or are you experiencing different behavior? Does the Genesys 2 stay power on while the programs are attempting to be run? Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hi @harish_k, Based on this section of it's reference manual, https://reference.digilentinc.com/add-ons/fmc-pcam-adapter/reference-manual#fpga_io_architecture_compatibility, my limited understanding is not necessarily that the FMC Pcam adapter is incompatible, but that the Ultrascale architecture is more restrictive in it's clock/strobe propgation than the VITA 57.1 specification document provides details for, with the need of each bank receiving two independent D-PHY interfaces. There are a couple of other threads about this topic as well: In those threads, there is mention of a FM
  7. Hi @barddya, I would recommend taking a look at this thread: Thanks, JColvin
  8. Hi @Albert Terheide, So you did. Sorry for the confusion, but I'm glad you already got the help you needed! Thanks, JColvin
  9. Hi @Albert Terheide, I have moved your question to a more appropriate section of the Forum. That being said, the WaveForms software which controls the Analog Discovery 2 should be able to run just fine on that Macbook; you'll likely need to tell MacOS to run the software anyways as per this thread, https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/20278-macos-10155-will-not-install-waveforms/, but otherwise there should not be any issues as far as I know. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  10. Hi @TNG, This is the information that I received: Base Material: HTE-500 (relevant datasheet attached) Manufacturer of the material: HONG TAI ELECTRIC INDUSTRIAL Co. LTD Material name: E188094 UL Flammability class: 94V-0 UL file number: E117098 (image attached) Thanks, JColvin HTE-500 datasheet.pdf
  11. Hi @jcs, The JTAG HS2 should be detected just fine with that command and your described setup. I don't know what troubleshooting you have already tempted, but do you happen to have a different Digilent JTAG device you could attempt to detect with your system? As an additional easy test, have you tried to use a different USB cable? Some cables only do power charging and not proper data transfer. Thanks, JColvin
  12. Hi @Ahmed Alfadhel, Those of us at Digilent don't have any direct advice to offer regarding neural networking, but a cursory internet search yielded these two papers (link1, link2) that might be of interest to you. Thanks, JColvin
  13. Hi @Glen F, I'll test this again with 2019.2; I haven't gotten to thoroughly compare your settings with what I've tried in the past (I'll likely spin up a new project unless I happen to find an old one that works), though I did notice that you set your laptop IP to be the same as the Gateway IP address that the Ethernet/microblaze demo presumes, so I don't know if that is affecting your connectivity or not. Thanks, JColvin
  14. Hi @Raj Kankula, Based on your screenshot I'm guessing you are referring to the Arty A7 35T rather than the Cmod A7 35T, but the answer remains the same. I do want to make a couple of notes/caveats up front though: - Why not just use an external voltage level translator, such as the Pmod LVLSHFT (though to be fair that only goes down to 1.8V rather than 1.2V)? Any sort modifications done to your board would void the warranty on the board. - U15 is not an I/O, but a power input pin, so you can't really configure it to output a voltage as such. You would instead use one of the I/O pi
  15. Hi @juandaniel, Presuming that the inputs that you are needing are all analog inputs (based on the -5V to +5V requirement), Digilent does not have any acquisition boards that have this many analog inputs all on one board. All of our Test and Measurement devices (with the exception of the Digital Discovery since it does not have any analog inputs) meet your listed requirements, though I do not know what you have in mind by "open software". All of Digilent's Test and Measurement devices are controlled through our WaveForms software, https://reference.digilentinc.com/software/waveforms/
